Expectant parents hit-and-run driver is 'a coward'

The baby boy who was born after his parents was killed in a car crash but later died, will be named and buried quickly in a private service, a family spokeman has said.

Community leader Isaac Abraham also said a hit-and-run driver and a female passenger who fled the scene that killed Raizy and Nachman Glauber were "cowards".

"Had it not been for this coward who caused this accident and ran off, the baby would have been in the mother's womb and lived.

"It's the prosecution's obligation to charge these cowards with triple homicide."
